Flood Barrier Dimension According to the National Structural Code of the Philippines (NSCP), the required dimension of doors in a residential building should not to be less than 90 centimetres (3 feet) in width and should not be less than 200 centimetres (6 feet and 7 inches) in height. For the protection of personal properties, the most suitable height of the flood barrier that are installed in doors is 60 cm (2 feet). A residential flood barrier that has a height that exceeds 2 feet is not ideal because flood level that exceeds 2 feet can already be marked as dangerous and can threaten the lives of the people and are in need for evacuation to a higher place. Thus, the most suitable dimension of the flood barrier for mitigation will be 90 centimetres (minimum) in width and 60 centimetres in height.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
